    This brings me way back: When I was in college - my Animal Physiology final exam (yes, this was so long ago that I think it was done on a stone tablet) included an essay question: "Which came first - the chicken or the egg?" Yes, it was serious. My thesis was that the egg came first because the life form is defined by the DNA; and the DNA that makes up what we define as a chicken today must have come from a combination of DNA from a male and a female (what called) "pre-chicken" - so the first real chicken was defined by that DNA combo that existed in the egg. Thus, it was that egg with what was now "real" chicken DNA must have been what formed the first real chicken. QED.

    I got an A (yes, I remember that as well); but today if I tried to imply that an egg or zygote had anything to do with "life" I would probably be expelled from college!
